Sprint Delays Galaxy S4 Retail Store Release Due to ‘Unexpected Inventory Challenges from Samsung’

April 24, 2013

Like T-Mobile, Sprint is also facing inventory challenges with its launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Android smartphone. The Now Network originally planned to release the device through all channels this Saturday, April 27th. While it appears online and phone sales will continue as scheduled, Sprint will scale back orders by delaying retail store availability. Official statement after the break.

Statement from Sprint:
Sprint is excited to launch the new Samsung Galaxy 4. We had planned to launch this next generation of the award-winning Samsung Galaxy line-up on Saturday, April 27. Unfortunately, due to unexpected inventory challenges from Samsung, we will be slightly delayed with our full product launch. Sprint is one of Samsung’s largest partners and we are working closely with them to launch in all Sprint channels as soon as possible. We expect to make Galaxy S 4 available at www.sprint.com and Telesales (1-800-SPRINT1) as planned on Saturday with Sprint retail stores and other channels receiving devices as inventory becomes available.
